Adequate, without frills, but well located
Just home from two great nights in Carlingford with my better half. The town is quaint, clean and friendly, and there's plenty to do, especially if you have a car. Mc Kevitts staff were very welcoming, and the room, although quite small, was clean, with a really powerful en suite shower, something I lack at home, so enjoy when available. The small, non-smart television may have been acceptable if it wasn't for the sound quality, being akin to listening to someones headphones on the bus. Sorry, but it was quite frankly not fit for purpose. Luckily we had good enough weather to spend most of our time on the go, but if for whatever reason, you're inclined to watch TV in a hotel, try somewhere else. The breakfast was equally disappointing, I'm sorry to say. The sausages and bacon both tasted off. We skipped it on the second morning. Overall, I cannot recommend avoiding Mc Kevitts, as the standard of accommodation in Carlingford is a very mixed bag, and the convenient central location cannot be ignored. I do however hope they will at some point in the future provide their guests with a decent television, and a decent breakfast. It's not a lot to ask for, especially at these prices.
